Catalogue Note

Leonard (later 1st Baron) Lyell (1850--1926) was the son of the geologist's sister-in-law Katharine Murray Lyell (née Horner, also a geologist), who was both sister to his wife Elizabeth, and wife to his brother Colonel Henry Lyell. He served as Liberal Member of Parliament for Orkney and Shetland from 1885 to 1900 and was commissioned a Deputy Lieutenant for Forfarshire in December 1901. Charles Lyell clearly thought highly of his nephew, for he bequeathed Kinnordy House to him upon his death in 1875 (Charles and Elizabeth's marriage had been childless).
